My intention had been to use the Denford/Sherline mill to make the cam - it should be a simple profiling job.  Sadly the mill has not been playing ball.  I've been driving the mill from a laptop via a USB to serial converter which seems to lead to communication errors.  I'm currently in the process of  resurecting an old XP desktop which I had been hoarding because it has a parallel output which could be useful for  Mach 3.  It doesn't have a serial output so I'm waiting for Ebay to provide me with a PCI serial card.
